Soft Ride Bike With Tempered Steel Wheels Will Never Have A Puncture

Designed by Ron Arad, an Israeli industrial designer, artist, and architect, known his Well-Tempered chair series that he began in 1986. The very unique Soft Ride bike has reimagined the humble bike wheel and created a totally radical departure from tradition, using tempered steel to create a wheel with complete different characteristics.

For a start you will never get a puncture using the Soft Ride Bike wheel. Which has sprung properties of the tempered steel used which have then been bolted together in tension providing a natural yield.

Magnetic Cello, Uses Magnet And Coil Rather Than Traditional Bow And Strings (video)

David Levi aka Magnetovore, a student studying electrical engineering, has created a fantastic and very innovative magnetic cello, which resembles the size, shape, and playing style of an acoustic cello. However rather than using a bow, you use a magnetic rod which takes the place of the bow to induce a voltage in a coil which replaces the traditional bridge in a cello.

By moving the magnetic rod back and forth you can control the voltage that is used to control the volume of the signal. The pitch of the instrument is controlled by resistive ribbons that have replaced the traditional strings, and are controlled by a second voltage. Watch the video after the jump to see the innovative Magnetic Cello in action.
